Yeah top hose is on no problem. It's trying to match up the old lower with a new hose to fit

I think someone put a I6 radiator in it. Because the 6 water pump outlet is on the drivers side. You need a new a new rad for a 289.

That's the conclusion I've come up with as well. Was hoping I could match up the hose I have now instead of coughing up 200 bucks just for a radiator

I wonder if even if you found a hose to work that the i6 radiator would be enough to keep you from over heating?

A 3 or 4 row will be much more efficient anyway.

What all do I need to do when swapping out radiators other then drain the coolant, and disconnect the lines?

For the 289 or 302 it does not matter if they are from a 65 or 68. I myself would get an aftermarket for a 65 289 and you should be good. As someone said a 3 row or 4 row if you have AC I would opt for the 4 row. I know the AC does not go though it but it does help keep the engine cooler in the hot weather.

+1. Very good advice brother.

I found out the problem. Yup I did when I went to our Mustang club meeting tonight. The water pump is the problem. The 302 comes out on the right and the 289 came out on the left. If the car had a 289 in it and now has a 302 you will need to make a hose for it or change the radiator to a 302 radiator. A friend has a 66 and he used a 2 inch pipe to connect the hoses together.

That is the 302 if you get a 289 water pump and alternator bracket you will have no problem getting it to fit. If you are tired of speeding money on this then get a piece of 2 inch exhaust pipe and a few hose clamps and cut the hose in the middle and add the pipe and hose clamps. Look at the bottom of the picture you can see this guy did it. Good Luck
